Bravo's Ladies of London star Caprice Bourret shocked the world when she had two sons – one born via a surrogate and the other carried by herself, delivered just weeks apart. And now, in an exclusive interview and photoshoot with HELLO! ahead of their second birthday, Caprice tells the magazine how people assume that Jax and Jett are twins.
“If anyone asks, ‘Are they twins?’ I always reply, ‘Yes'," Caprice tells HELLO!. "I need quite a long time to tell my story and they look so close in age it is easier to say they are twins."
In what is thought to be the only case of its kind, the model and reality star, who fell pregnant with one of her sons only a matter of weeks after her surrogate became pregnant with the first, says she plans to have one birthday that both the boys will celebrate. "When it comes to their birthdays, I will find an official date and we’ll celebrate on the same day," Caprice, continues, ahead of the publication of her autobiography "My Boys, My Body, My Business."
"As they get older, it will be up to them if they prefer separate birthdays," she adds. "So yes, I will tell them the truth eventually, but I don’t think it will affect them in a bad way or make them feel any different. I love these boys so much, more than my own life, and I’m their biological mother."
Recalling how the boys – her children with partner Ty Comfort – are very close, she says: "They interact like twins. They adore each other but also drive one another mad. So they’ll fight over ridiculous things like their cars or who gets on a swing first, yet if they’re not together every moment they miss each other."
